Springtime for Nick Hogan is coming this fall.
The former reality star and son of Hulk Hogan will be released three months earlier than expected from Pinellas County Jail thanks to credits for behind-bars working and good behavior, E! News has confirmed.
All told, the 18-year-old Hogan, born Nick Bollea, will serve just five months of the eight-month sentence he received last May. The punishment was handed down after he pleaded no contest to one count of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury for a 2007 high-speed DUI crash left his passenger, John Graziano, severely injured.
County officials said that the early release schedule was not an example of special treatment for the celeb offspring, but standard procedure for non-misbehaving inmates.
